So I am a bobo that is looking for sponsoring...

I find your attitude very rude, to say the least.

Maybe you did not like the look of the site? Maybe you don't understand French and got lost? I don't know.
Should I have pointed you at the British/American flag, and the Linux link? Come on, we're grown people, and I shouldn't need to take your hand through every link!

Please consider the fact that the poster did not say if the problem was with recognition of the keys, or with usage of those keys. I provide the answer for the former case, and believe me, there is information in there, that was very usefull, not only to me, but also to other people... on another board, where I thankfully never saw this kind of agressivity.

As for sponsoring, that's non-sense . Viewing the pages is free. This is simply my home-page, where the Linux part is not very big, true, but helpfull nonetheless. And of course I don't receive anything when you view the pages. I even have to pay to have them online.

So maybe you did not find what you were looking for, but that's no excuse.
There's only one thing I have to concede, though:
Today is the first time I went to my home-page from Windows (just to see I had not misspelled the link). And I discovered that there are many anoying pop-ups ! I never saw them, because at home, I use Linux/Mozilla, and those pop-ups of course get blocked. Sorry for the inconvenience...

Good bye,

Yves.

spikeyklitske -- per the LQ Rules, name-calling and personal insults are not welcome here. Please refrain from using that kind of language in your posts. If you have not done so recently I would recommend that you review the LQ Rules Please make a point to observe them.

theYinYeti -- your site does contain useful information, however, as you already indicated, visitors who are using IE will get hit with a lot of annoying pop-ups, which can be a huge turn-off to many people. Thus some folks may see those pop-ups and regret clicking on the link. Can those pop-ups be suppressed? Additionally, due to the fact that LQ is in English, it may be helpful to point out that your site does support multiple languages, and that the language can be controlled by clicking on the different flags. Some people just might not notice that. Thanks/Merci.

penguin4 -- calling someone else an "ugly american" is likewise unnecessary, and considering that spikeyklitske has not indicated his/her location, and does not mention it in any posts, you are just assuming that he/she is in the US, but obviously it is just as likely that he/she is in Europe, Asia, etc.

Let's all get back on track now, and keep the discussion focused on Linux. Thanks -- J.W.

Sorry again for the pop-ups. I did not know they were there!
Here's a direct link:

It seems there's no pop-up this time...
